GTower Hotel, the luxurious and corporate looking hotel located on Jalan Tun Razak has been the favourite topic for KL folks recently for it's Ramadhan buffets, exclusive bars, lounge, restaurants, gym and rooms. I personally have been here on numerous occasions, two of which was by invitation for the TimeOut KL Cocktail Mixing Workshop and the View Rooftop Bar Cocktail Review. This time around, I was invited by Elwyn, and a bunch of other blogger friends to try out the High-Tea 3-Tier Sandwich and Pastries menu at The Lounge GTower Hotel

The Lounge is located in the middle of the ground floor of GTower Hotel facing the main entrance, a good location for a first timer like me. I reached just in time to catch up with some of the bloggers there before the 3-Tier Sandwich and Pastries Set were served. We were all warmly greeted and welcomed by Gladys from Goldis Berhad who took the liberty to explain to us what we were going to have.

So what exactly is the 3-Tier Sandwich and Pastries Set? A quick look at the menu describes this set as and afternoon meeting tea set nice enough for 3 persons. The exact descriptions were "Afternoon Meeting Tea Set, a selection of 3 tier sandwiches or pastries (as per chef discretion) & your choice of coffee or local tea" We were awed at the choices of pastries when the set was actually served. Check out below on some actual photos of the set.

|3rd Tier - Heavenly Cakes|
The sandwiches and pastries were of a varied range with different flavors to cater for everyone's taste bud. We have the ones which are savoury with meat, which I like, and also the ones which are really sweet. I admit the sweet pastries will garner a lot fans from the ladies, but it may be a tad too sweet for me. The set that came in was really unique to me, and really filled up our stomachs. Bear in mind this was meant for tea time specifically. Good stuff indeed.

All in all, we all had a good tea time today, and it's not that often we get to gather around just relaxing and chatting in a cozy hotel environment while sipping on coffee/tea with sandwiches and pastries. Again, I would like to re-emphasize my stand that all bloggers are really friendly folks. Below are some photos I managed to capture of some of us who attended today's session.

Good times indeed, so if you're in the vicinity, and would like to enjoy this set of 3-tier sandwiches and pastries, do drop by The Lounge at GTower Hotel. The published price is RM45 for the set plus 1 serving of any coffee or tea. However MilkADeal will be coming up with a deal soon to get a cheaper rate for this combination, so be on a lookout for their upcoming deals at their webpage.
